The Department of Cultural and Global Engagement is helping members of the Quinnipiac family get to know each other a little better by sharing a collection of cultural recipes.

Students, alumni, faculty and staff are encouraged to share recipes as part of International Education Week.

“During this time when the COVID-19 pandemic prevents us from traveling or gathering together in large groups to share a meal with each other, the DCGE’s Intercultural Cookbook aims to connect our community members through food and culture,” said Sarah Driscoll, director of international student services. “Every dish is a personal story of history, family, and cultural heritage.”

The goal of the cookbook is to illuminate the cultural richness and celebrate the diversity of our global community at Quinnipiac, Driscoll said.

“We hope the collaborative cookbook will lead to a deep appreciation of the valuable contributions that each person makes to our Bobcat family,” she said.

To participate, email your favorite cultural recipe to international.student@qu.edu — and check the recipes already submitted here.
